The session will be an introduction to a number of general principles of guidance on the use of technology in arbitration. The aim will be to provide context to the practice of arbitration as an increasingly technology-driven activity and aims to initiate an ongoing discussion on the use of new technologies to serve the arbitration process.
To that end, the session will cover four main, overarching principles, each of which is accompanied by practical guidance on how it might best be implemented in practice.
These principles include:
- The arbitrator’s powers and duties with respect to the use of technology;
- The proportionate use of technology;
- The fair and transparent use of technology; and
- The secure use of technology
